Dark Money: How the Supreme Court’s 6-3 Anti-Choice, Conservative Majority Was Shaped

What role did dark money play in the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade? Democracy Now! speaks with reporter Andrew Perez about how conservative anti-abortion groups and right-wing extremists have funneled millions of dollars into promoting politicians and Supreme Court justices to ultimately curtail reproductive rights. A dark money network led by the Federalist Society’s Leonard Leo has spent at least $10 million promoting each of President Trump’s picks for the Supreme Court and another $10 million blocking Merrick Garland’s nomination in 2016, says Perez, senior editor and investigative reporter at The Lever.
